Steven Seagal thinking about a run for Arizona governor



Steven Seagal is making headlines once again.

The flamboyant actor and martial arts expert tells ABC15 he’s considering a run for the Arizona governor’s office.

Seagal says he’s had discussions with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio about the prospective bid, but has other priorities to consider.

The 61-year-old Seagal made the comments while talking about his newly released reality series “Steven Seagal – Lawman: Maricopa County” (The Lost Episodes.)

Naked DC has more:

Vladimir Putin’s best friend, 1990′s pop culture Kung Fu icon and all-around Nehru-jacket sporting badass Steven Seagal has decided that he’s tired of a quiet life trying to bridge the gap between Russia and the United States by attending martial arts matches and striking up a profitable friendship with Russian arms dealers, and now seems to want to run for office. Governor. Of Arizona.

Because if there’s any state in the union that desperately needs someone like Steven Seagal to lend an air of seriousness to local and state government, it’s the state of Arizona, which should clearly prepare for a campaign that is the political equivalent of a roundhouse kick to the f***ing face.
